Purchase Information

At Almost Famous Frenchies all of our puppies are raised in our home, are socialized, and given lots of love and attention daily.
 

Puppies go to their new homes with a puppy starter kit which includes, their first food, some puppy toys, limited AKC registration paperwork, puppy care instructions, a cozy blanket scented with their litter mates, and a one (1) year health guarantee against fatal and life altering congenital and genetic disease which adversely affects the health of the animal.
 

Puppies are up to date on their shots and worming’s and are checked by our vet at birth, 6 and 8 weeks old.
 

We encourage puppy visits from our puppy buyers once the puppies are 6 weeks old. Our puppy buyers can visit their puppies in our home, prior to their puppy pick up date.


If you live out of town, for a delivery fee, we can personally fly the puppy to your location or you can come to us to pick up your new little bundle of joy!  


Also, please see our "Important Information" and "Documents" tabs.

Getting Started

Step #1 - Get approved!

For consideration as a puppy buyer, we ask that you answer a few questions and complete our “Puppy Questionnaire.”  We take special care to ensure that all of our frenchie puppies find their perfect forever homes.  The questionnaire can be found on our Documents tab as "Puppy Questionnaire"   

Step #2 - Leave a deposit!

  1. Once you are approved as a  puppy buyer, the next step is to place a deposit to hold your spot on the puppy waitlist or to reserve your choice of puppy. Deposits are $500.00 *You are not guaranteed to receive a puppy from us unless we have received a deposit from you*
  2. You may place the deposit one of the following ways: cash, PayPal, or Venmo. If paying by PayPal/venmo the customary 3.5% service fee that is charged by the banking institution, will be added to the purchase price of the puppy.
  3. Deposits are applied towards the purchase price of your puppy.  Deposits are non-refundable, with the following exceptions:  
    1. Your pup is found to be unhealthy or dies prior to your purchase. (We hope this never happens)
    2. The litter doesn't produce the color/gender you specified on your puppy questionnaire 
  4. If you change your mind about the puppy, find a different puppy, find out you cannot have a dog, or for any other reason your circumstances change and you decide you do not want or cannot keep your puppy the deposit will NOT be refunded.   

Step #3 - Select your Puppy!

If you are placing a deposit on an unborn litter, pet puppy picks are determined, in the order of deposit received.

  • We will send out photos of the litter once they are born. Pictures will also be posted on our Instagram page.
  • When it’s your turn to select your pet puppy, if what you’re looking for isn't born or is already spoken for, you are not forced to take a puppy, you may pass your deposit on to our next litter. However, if we have a puppy that is available and offered to you, that meets your criteria as detailed on your puppy questionnaire your deposit IS NON-REFUNDABLE. 
  • Puppies are not selected in person until after they are 3 weeks old, as they are too young for visitors at that age. We will send out tons of pictures and descriptions of the babies to help you make your choice. Puppies do not show personality until they are over 6+ weeks old.  

Step #4 - Paying Balance Due

The balance is due on your puppy when it is 8 weeks old, either before or at the time of delivery/pick up date. We will accept cash only for the balance.   

 

Puppies must be at least 8-9 weeks before they will be ready to go to their new homes. Some require more time with us. We will make the final decision as to when each individual puppy will be sent home once they see the vet for their 7 week check up.


If you for some reason cannot pick up your puppy on the "pick-up" date and need it to stay longer in our home, then a $20/day boarding fee will be applied to the balance due.

Other Details

Once you have taken possession of your puppy, if you change your mind about the puppy, find a different puppy, find out you cannot have a dog,
or for any other reason you decide you do not want or cannot keep your puppy, we will take back the puppy and do our best to find the puppy an appropriate home.  In this case, the purchase price including the deposit will not be refunded.
